Things To Do During The Moving Process To Minimize Fatigue

While you cannot deny that there is some excitement that comes with the idea of moving to a new home, it is also hard to deny the fact that the process of preparing to move, and taking part in the actual move is stressful and can significantly drain your energy. Research shows that moving is ranked high as significant life stressors after job loss, major illness, divorce, or even the loss of a loved one. The process involves so many activities such as finding the appropriate moving company, house, among others. If you are not careful, the fatigue that comes with the process can have adverse impacts on your health. Hiring a mover  can help reduce the associated stress significantly.

Here are a few other ways to minimize the fatigue caused by the moving process:

  • Prepare yourself psychologically: Whether it was by your own will to move to a new area or not, the first thing to do to minimize getting fatigue is to have the right mental attitude. Make the best of your move by having a positive mindset. Fill your mind with good prospects in your new home.
  • Have a clear picture of your new area: One of the reasons why most people get stressed is the lack of knowledge of what to expect in their new area. To avoid such a case, make sure that you research widely about the area. Such research gives you some sense of preparedness and hence, ensures that you are not stressed.

  • Plan in advance, plan well: Planning for a move is not just about finding a moving company. You will need to get many things right before your day of the move. If you wait to plan at the last minute, you are looking for more fatigue and stress. Start planning for the move as early as possible –it gets your mind and body ready for the day of the move.
  • Hire the right moving company: The moving process involves numerous activities such as packing and loading items into moving trucks. It is a stressful process and hence, it is advisable to hire a trustworthy moving company such as A-1 Auto Transport to help you in packing, loading, moving, unloading and unpacking your items. Take some time to rest and get short breaks between different activities as the movers help to get things moving. Such a strategy helps in significantly reducing the fatigue of moving.
  • If you have any emotional needs, take care of them: Moving to a new area can come with emotions especially in a case where you are moving against your will. If you experience any feelings of emotions such as grief, do not worry, accept it and think positively. Emotional acceptance helps you create a better emotional space within yourself and minimize any chances of fatigue or stress. Take some time to relax and unwind, eat healthy and stay hydrated.

The moving process is accompanied by many activities and events that can leave you stressed and fatigued. However, thinking positively, planning early, taking care of your emotional needs, and having a clear understanding of your new area can help you manage to have a painless move. In addition, engaging a professional mover can go a long way in reducing the fatigue associated with moving.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
